    Excellent tour, superb guide, great company! The jeep was old, but the small group atmosphere great. Highly recommended!

    I booked 3 tours with this company. 1 full day furnas. 1 full day 4X4 Sete Cidas. Lastly, 1 full day 4X4 Nordeste. Would definitely recommend. Easy to communicate with. Guides are awesome :) guides are flexible, accommodating and very knowledgeable as well as passionate about the island.

    La excursión está muy bien, aunque no incluya la comida. Disfrutamos mucho con la compañía de nuestro guía Filipe que nos hizo el día súper ameno y nos descubrió bonitos rincones de la isla!! Un 10 para él!!!

    Rodrigo was a great person to have us explore the nordeste - it was honestly a pleasure taking this tour on our second day in San Miguel. Highly recommend this tour for sight seeing

    My wife and I greatly enjoyed our time exploring the north-east of Sao Miguel with Felipe and another lovely couple. Started off from Vila Franca do Campo, went to some amazing viewpoints and traveled through some spectacular natural sites. Felipe our guide was knowledgeable about all the sites and flora and fauna of the island and it was very interesting hearing and asking for further details. No question was too much. We enjoyed our time immensely and would recommend this activity to anyone visiting Sao Miguel.

    Rodrigo was a superb guide and friend for the day. Great local insight. He was very open to what we preferred to do. He was a great driver and the utmost professional. We would highly recommend this tour!

    Nous avons passé une excellente journée en compagnie de Felipe et Rodrigo, qui nous ont fait découvrir cet partie méconnue et sauvage de l'île. Leur bonne humeur et leur connaissance de l'île et de sa flore nous ont fait passé un bon moment, d'autant que nous étions seuls dans le 4x4. Merci aussi pour vos efforts en français, Google translation 😏et cette merveilleuse glace à l'hortensia. 🤣

    Filipe was fabulous, extremely informative, funny, helpful and enjoyable! The adventure began, Nordeste was amazing

    Phillip is the best. He definitely deserves a raise for how awesome he is. Such a wonderful tour! If your in São Miguel definitely book this tour. Not only will you get to explore a different area of the island but experience a tour guide who is an extraordinaire that knows history, is passionate about what he does, and actually cares about you as the guest. I was also fortunate to have Rodrigo along that was in training to be a guide in the future and he added his own touch to the tour which I can imagine his tours just as magical as Phillips. Whoever you have as a guide will make your trip to the Azores extra special. I hope in the future to cross paths with my tour guide again maybe even a redo of the last tour since it was so epic. If you made it this far don’t question and book the tour. I promise you it will be way worth it. (:

    Bellissima escursione. Molto azzeccato il percorso scelto e i luoghi raggiunti. Difficilmente in autonomia si riuscirebbe a fare lo stesso itinerario. La nostra guida è stata piacevolissima e molto preparata.
